The warming Arctic poses many challenges for animals, whether small or large, terrestrial or marine. In this session, presenters will show how animal populations are changing or are expected to change in a near future. Increasing rain-on-snow, new predators, and a changing food web are only a few examples of new challenges for wildlife due to a warming Arctic. A diversity of taxa will be used as models such as snails, small and large terrestrial and marine mammals, and birds.
